Description

Will be available in April 2019

The Getting to Grips with English Grammar series is built on the premise that pupils need to put grammar and punctuation rules into practice in their writing and reading for them to truly understand grammar. The series integrates engaging reading comprehension passages and writing tasks with activities to teach grammar and punctuation. The grammar is introduced in a systematic way and concepts are revisited as you progress through the scheme to ensure firm understanding.

Mini-quizzes at the end of each unit assess that the pupils have understood and can use the grammar points taught. The accompanying teacher’s notes help you to make the most of each sheet.
